My boyfriend just got a 19 inch Samsung flatscreen widescreen today and his resolution is 1440 by 900, nothing else looks good for him. The monitor is  hurting his eyes and he found suggestions to up the refresh rate to 100 hertz. Well apparently you can't have 1440x900@100 hertz, but then he told me he also read someone had the same problem, same resolution, and he did something with his drivers to make it go up to 100 hertz on that resolution. Does anybody know how this can be done? Thanks.

There are two options available to him.

1) Get a screen filter, so the bright light doesn't pain him so.
2) Get the latest drivers for his graphics card (or onboard graphics chip) and manually set the brightness from within the said drivers.
